abetting moscow's information campaign and aiding and abetting the kremlin. >> he compared the birther push that donald trump was behind to this. let me take a look at the tweet as we move prompter forward. there's an old saying, live by the sword, you know what it means. so is donald trump feeling some of the wrath that he brought forward five years ago? >> no, that's completely ridiculous. it's a reporter's job to publish claims that are verified and can be completely a 100% corroborated as true. i think in the climate that we have today where only 4% of americans have a favorable view of the media and an overwhelming number of them think that we are align and we have bias when we are reporting, i think we are fighting uphill battle and proving ourselves to be trust worthy and he's under mining the cause and the fight and i think that that's frustrating to watch as a reporter myself. brian: he made so much news about border wall, supreme court justice, it was swamped by the combative nature of the press specially with the reporter in particular and the other thing was he fights back

being sent to moscow now from the trump transition team. >> we are going to open it up to questions very soon and wander around but i just want to get a little bit on i know the threats, the priorities going forward, but how you view donald trump's foreign policy agenda or his strategic thinking in terms of foreign policy and whether you really have to dine that. throughout my career everybody's defined this is the clinton doctrine, this is the obama doctrine, this is the bush dock doctrine. do you need that in every case or can it be a case tocase basis? admiral stavridis. >> i think it's premature to try to scope all that out simply because the nominees that president-elect trump put forward were not anticipated to say the least. i think if you go back 630 da0 ago and said we're going to pick a four-star general to head up the department of defense, another four-star general at -- the ceo of exxon. all good picks, by the way. you've got to see that team come together interact with mike flynn and k.t. mcfarland, let them do the traditional nsc role and we've got to give them some space

is whether the cia is investigating connections between trump, his campaign and moscow. i guess that's a tricky question. i was just reading your book today. you talked about one of the reasons that the cia is out of the city, over in langley, virginia, to keep the spies away from washington and the political figures. is this going to be tricky to have the cia investigating the guy who is just about to be our president, continuing to investigate about his possible, you know, perhaps malicious involvement with the russians before his campaign was over. in other words, was there engagement by him with the russians in a way that helped his campaign. that's a fruitful area of investigation. but how do you do that while the president is in office? >> well, you do it very carefully. you know, the reality is that the fbi obviously would be one of those agencies to investigate those allegations and at least according to the director, it appears that they may very well have an investigation on that issue. obviously, the cia might very well conduct a similar investigation. you would hope
